Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Our purpose has always been to publish well-crafted poetry using the best electronic means available. Our highest priority is the quality of writing. We will also post companion media pieces such as artwork, video the published poem being read by the author and other mixed media items that the editors agree are relevant. Our editorial philosophy is simple: It is the duty of the writer to accurately chronicle our times and to reflect honestly on how these events affect us. Poetry which strikes a truth, which artfully conveys the human condition is most likely to be selected. Vulgarity and coarseness are part of our daily life, and are thus valid. Life isn’t always pretty. However vulgarity and coarseness, just for the sake of the exercise, doesn’t generally benefit anyone.Red River Review is open to all styles of writing. Abstract, beat, confessional, free verse, synthetic, formal — we will publish just about anything that has the authenticity and realism we’re seeking.

We accept submissions only through our web site page. Please feel free to use this link Submissions or the “Submissions” link on our issue pages to send us your work. As we are an electronic literary journal, we do not accept submissions sent through postal mail. The editor often comments on the poems that are submitted and may suggest revisions or expansions of the work. These are only suggestions and are not meant to bind any one writer to conforming to our stylistic desires. We are all writers working in the craft. Many times by conversing about the poetic elements employed by the poet we can see where the strengths and the weaknesses lie in the work and move ourselves and the poem forward. We do not accept previously published work or simultaneous submissions. Red River Review seeks first rights to publication and anthology rights for a possible Red River Review anthology. All other rights revert to the author. Any poem republished out of Red River Review should be properly cited. Please be aware that your poems are archived in our back issues. We cannot take them down on request as then it would not be archives but simply poems left behind.
